Sisters' Garden & Bloom [FALL:Farm-Style Open House]

Feast your eyes on the beautiful farm-style open house!
2 full days of the newest vintage finds, old cars & trucks, mums, hot apple cider, coffee, hot dogs, pumpkins, gourds, lots of fun & much much more!

Thanks to everyone who came to make the event very special!
There were so many fun things to take pictures of, 
I could hardly set the camera down! :)

There is still a lot of fun to find at Sisters' Garden & Bloom for your fall decor!
[located 10 minutes south out of Iowa City on Hwy 1]

Happy Evening to all!


family [the Aber's]

Meet the Aber family.
They were so much fun to work with,
& were good sports when it rained for about 20 minutes....
we whipped out ladybug, frog, & flower umbrellas from inside of Bloom.
The kids loved the umbrellas & playing in the sand after they were done!

Here's the whole family:

The parents/grandparents:

Thank you so much for choosing me Aber family!!!

wedding [marcus & kaitlin] ceremony

Marcus & Kaitlin's ceremony was just with their family & close friends 
at the Catholic church, it was so special.
Everyone was very emotional when Kaitlin walked down the aisle 
& during the exchanging of vows,
Marcus especially.

[The Priest told me to stay 'invisible'...
so I had to stay in the back of the church & use no flash...
but still captured some very special moments of
this intimate ceremony.]

 And here they are,
SO HAPPY to be married!
Love it.


Up next for this wedding:
some Bella Sala photos!
Stay tuned :)
